Suzi Digby is back, and most happily for us, has generously agreed once again to celebrate Advent with us by sharing her new recording, The Mystery of Christmas.
And as a special treat just for our Millennium fans, she's allowing us to email you a free Advent song every day from Dec 6th through Dec 24th.
DAY THREE: We may know Roderick Williams for opera, but his choral studies at Magdalen College, Oxford certainly gave him grounding in writing for chorus. In his setting of the “O Adonai” (one of the so-called “O antiphons" for Advent), a soprano provides the voice of an angel, the choir sings as the ordinary masses, a chorus of angels rises to dominate, and a cantor in Jewish style comes in to declaim the antiphon in what the composer asked to be “an almost operatic” way. [Full disclosure: Suzi persuaded “Roddy” to take that part himself for this recording.]
Also remember that Suzi would like to offer you a copy of her new recording as a free gift if you:
- Join Millennium of Music as a Bronze or higher member with a new membership.
- Upgrade your current membership to Silver or Gold.
- Or give a gift membership for a friend or loved one.
So, apparently, Suzi Digby is Santa Claus! At least for us!
